FLATTEN YOUR CURVE
With misinformation about COVID-19 causing people to flood your emergency department, hospitals may soon fall victim to the “High Curve” ¹ – a swift and overwhelming Tsunami of patients in the ED that can overrun staff, put a stress on limited equipment and deplete scarce PPE even more. This makes it much more difficult to care for the normal population of patients.

Flattening the Curve at your hospital can occur…help is available
To assist you in turning the tide combating the COVID-19 crisis at your hospital, Impact Health (a national leader in health screening/testing since 1987) can deploy the COVID-19 Rapid Response Nurse Service, a trained & certified nurse group to act at your direction as an extension of your staff. They handle COVID-19 Testing and Triage for both patients and staff. The team has been trained in the administration of the leading test kits and protocols and show up at your location ready to get to work so your nurses can return to providing care for patients and operating at the top-of-license.
Impacting the Curve as Early as Possible
Proactive early intervention can have a major impact. Delayed intervention can also have an impact if conducted early enough.² In each instance, intervention will flatten your curve, lengthening the duration but creating a more manageable and predictable situation. Riding the “Low Curve” can lower costs as well.
